pCongratulations to Brandeis School of Law students Ahmed Safeeulah and Laurie Beth McTighe on their stellar performance at the Florida Bar Tax Section Moot Court Competition. They went 1-1 after the first day, with their loss coming to the fourth place finisher, to advance to the second day. On the second day, they narrowly lost to the University of Florida, last year's runner-up and one of the top tax programs in the nation. They received rave reviews on their performance from both competitors and coaches. /ppnbsp;/ppimg src=https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/c85.0.403.403/p403x403/579704_10200585035732888_1711645601_n.jpg alt=Tax Team height=265 width=265 / /p
pRandal K. Seago, 56, died at his residence Jan. 29, 2013. Mr. Seago received his bachelor's degree from Davidson College in 1979, and received his JD in 1985 from the Brandeis School of Law. He was admitted to the North Carolina Bar Association in 1988, the same year that he began his affiliation with the North Carolina Academy of Trial Lawyers. Mr. Seago earned a reputation as an attorney wholly devoted to and passionate about defending the rights of his clients. Mr. Seago was also a member of American Association for Justice. He has been involved in many high-profile cases in his career, including appellate work that resulted in a significant interpretation of the law in favor of his clients, and was recognized as one of the leading trial attorneys in Western North Carolina. He developed a passion for defending people accused of capital murder, and was a featured speaker last year at the annual seminar devoted to those dedicated to saving people from the death penalty. Despite sometimes incredible odds, he never had a client sentenced to death. Mr. Seago also broke new legal ground in the early 1990s with the use of DNA testing to prove paternity to allow the rightful heir to inherit. He was universally respected in the legal community, and mentored countless younger attorneys how they could learn to be zealous, yet ethical, advocates./ppa href=http://www.meltonfhsylva.com/obits/obituary.php?id=253910Click here /afor more information about the funeral arrangements. /p
